About the Poem

This poem was written shortly after the death of my good friend, Ryan, who died a tragic death by falling asleep while driving. Like the poem states, I never really thought that it would come so soon. It was a hard time not only for me, but for all of his friends. This poem goes out to anybody who has lost someone close to them.

Friends Until The End

We used to talk
We used to laugh
We were best of friends
I thought that’s how it would always be
You taught me so much
Told me exactly what to say
I wish it were still the same
But someday I know it will
Maybe not today
But we’ll meet up again
It won’t be long until I see your face
In Heaven that marvelous day

I feel your grief because about a year ago, my friends and I were having a get together and we were playing hide and go seek and as my freind Frieda looked out for cars, her small body was hit by a huge black Jeep. This was witnessed by everyone and it has left a huge whole in our hearts.

My best friend Chris just died 2 days ago from a massive heart attack, he was only 16 years old. No one ever expected this he was one of the sweetest most caring person you would have ever met. This poem reminds me so much of him I know it'll get better with time but I don't know how when I just lost one of the best things in my life.
